Ron's McCombe's Garden Workshop

TheTamshee: was privilaged to spent the afternoon in the company of wildlife photographer Ron McCombe; winner of the Scottish Photographer of the year 2010, with his colourful photo of this Waxwing. Congratulations, once again on this great achievement. Ron's garden workshop session was of great benefit, allowing me to learn camera features and practise techniques while capturing great shots of the great spotted woodpecker, nuthatch and many other common garden birds.

The Three Brethern

TheTamshee: set off up the Corby Linn en-route to the Three Brethern Cairns which were built in the 1500s by the lairds of Yair, Selkirk and Philiphaugh to mark the boundary of their land. The rewards are fantastic panoramic views across Minch Moor to the South & the distant Eildon Hills to the East. In more recent years the view to the north is dominated by the wind turbines at Longpark Farm
